Necromantic Alchemy, Death Magick, & Psychic Vampyrism

The grey energy emitted by corpses and dead tissue is referred to by the titles of Death Energy and the Death Essence, and the variant of witchcraft incorporating it is referred to as Death Magick.

It is known to be a necessity for the witch to develop and attunement to the Death Essence prior to engaging in Necromancy, but the aspiring Necromancer is always warned not to allow the Death Essence to seep into her aura, less her health become diminished. Nonetheless, some amount of Death Energy always infiltrates the subtle body, and so a gradual debilitation continues.

There is a powerful loophole to this guideline which few magickians are aware of: a magickian who has acquired a proficiency in the practice of psychic vampyrism will have developed such an aptitude for digesting and altering foreign energies that she becomes capable of not only imbibing the Death Essence without harming herself, but even benefiting from the act.

I refer to the act of becoming saturated with the Death Essence as “entering the Mortis State.” To do so is to become magnified in power and undergo permutations of the very essence. The magickian becomes gradually likened to the entities which she interacts with by way of gradual permutation, and for the vampyric magickian, the alchemy of Death Magick and communion with the dead develops the psychic senses, renders the Kundalini easier to raise, causes the bestial manifestation of the Higher Self to be more easily accessible, and permutates the chakras such that working with them yields greater and quicker results.

In the Mortis State, the sorceress is more capable of perceiving the astral oddities about her and retrospectively remembering dreams. The magickian who is saturated with the Death Essence is more difficult to kill and less likely to die. Sometimes, a vampyric magickian can feed on the Death Energy within a moribund person, and in doing so, save their life.

I refer to the magickian’s aptitude for deprogramming exogenous human energy and attuning it to one’s natural ‘flavor’ by the name vampyric metabolism. By regularly feeding on the prana of other humans, the magickian develops the vampyric metabolism, increasing her aptitude for energy work in general, and making her suitable for the art of self-transformation via Death Magick. Of all the countless avenues of spiritual progression available to me, my spirit guides told me that Necromantic Alchemy was among the very most useful and essential to my ascent.

The Psychic Vampyres are the Real Vampires

Psychic vampyrism, which is a known technique of white and black magickians alike, is the practice of feeding upon the spiritual energy of other persons, and sanguine vampyrism is the act of drinking human blood for sustenance. Most people who practice sanguine vampyrism consider drinking blood to be nothing more than a particularly potent way of taking someone else’s spiritual energy.

While most black magickians see vampyrism as little more than an optional practice which they may or may not adopt, some authorities amongst modern systems of vampyric magick believe that some humans are born with anomalies of the spiritual body which require them to feed upon exogenous spiritual energy instead of recycling nature’s prana like the majority of people do. Initiates of the Black Lodge who practice vampyrism tend to doubt the reality of born vampyres, but vampyres external to the  “Left Hand Path” insist on self-identifying as born vampyres.

I initially adopted the practice of vampyrism as nothing more than another spiritual exercise to improve my magickal talents in preparation for all the demon-summoning I dreamed of doing. I’ve practiced vampyrism about as long as I’ve practiced Satanism, and after leading a Hecatean-Qliphothic coven of psychic vampyres for a year, I’m confident in my self-identification as a born vampyre.

For the black magickians in my audience who don’t believe in born vampyres, I’d recommend the books The Ethical Psychic Vampire by Raven Kaldera and The Psychic Vampire Codex by Michelle Bellenger– two self-identified born vampyres. Once you’ve read those two books, or even just Bellenger’s, you’ll see all treatises on the practice of psychic vampyrism arising from Satanists, Luciferians, Niners, etc. as completely useless. In short, Bellenger believed in born vampyres, and there is no fucking way she would get that wrong– let alone her and Kaldera both. Not only did Bellenger write a better manual of vampyric magick than anybody in any of the religions that influence me, she wrote the best encyclopedia-style text on demonology I’ve ever read– and that’s only a portion of her immense literary corpus.

After reading Vampires: Burial and DeathThe Encyclopedia of Vampire MythologyThe Vampire Encyclopedia, and more, I have reached a conclusion: vampyre myths come about from rumors about real vampyre– both vampyres who didn’t know what they were and antiquity’s underground black magickians.

The overwhelming majority of vampyres described in world mythology fall into one or more of four categories: animated corpses, living human witches, the shades of deceased humans, and predatory species of evil spirits. Mixtures like a human corpse inhabited by a demon or the predatory ghost of human witch (compare that to the Undead Gods) exemplify the grey areas between the four mythological demographics.

Many mythological vampyres, including some therianthropic species, were considered to be either the astral doubles or familiar spirits of living human black magickians. In some cultures, the community’s benevolent practitioners of therionick magick, which were like any other magickians living in and trusted by our ancestors’ civilizations, would protect the villagers from vampyric practitioners of therionick magick in regular astral combat– at least, that’s what the people believed (this will be relevant later).

Generally speaking, mythological vampyres most often shapeshifted into stereotypically diabolic animals like pigs, serpents, cats, etc. rather than wolves. Werewolf trials and vampyre trials are lesser-known phenomena under the umbrella of the witch hunt phenomenon, with vampyre hunters being a strange fringe amongst the witchhunters who justified their belief in vampyres with arguments taken from Malleus Maleficarum. Werewolf myths are also believed to have some origin in the Pagan practice wherein warriors adorned themselves in wolf pelts and engendered altered states of consciousness.

While some mythological vampyres fed on the spiritual energy of humans, most of them drank human blood, including notable instances of living human witches drinking blood for magickal power. Needless to say, drinking human blood is pretty fucking conspicuous, so the fact that the preponderance of vampyres in world mythology drank human blood instead of feeding on spiritual energy makes perfect sense if these myths did arise from real predation by real spirits and witches. After all, how many people are psychic enough to know that a sorcerer took their prana?

Several variants of mythological vampyres arise from or are influenced by the incremental degradation of human flesh engendered after death– for example, the existence of necrophages that glow like fireflies brought about a lot of misconceptions. When a series of suspicious and unexplained incidents of the kind(s) considered symptomatic of vampyric activity would occur in close sequence, our ancestors would dig up whichever corpse resulted from the most stigmatized or “suspicious” person amongst the recently dead.

Normal phenomena of corpse decay would have produced fluids around the mouth, which our ancestors would interpret as resulting from the corpse’s blood-drinking habit. A villager stabs the corpse, and the crowd gasps as the deceased emits a hideous moan. Of course, we know today this moan was the sound of the corpse deflating, but our ancestors were not so enlightened. What if a vampyric witch were amongst our ancestors’ midst? The villagers just keep checking the local burial place for moans or luminescence. As the uninitiated conjure wild stories of the time they survived the perfidies of the undead, the heir to a hidden generational Craft or the elected worshiper of some darksome divinity continues her witchcraft unsuspected.

Do you know how S. Conolly, the magickian who coined the term “Demonolatry,” came to venerate the Devil? Probably not, considering how many learned Occultists still think she’s man. According to one of the entries to her YouTube channel (OFS Adrianna), Stephany Reisner Conolly once prayed to Satan in childlike ignorance after the Abrahamic deity failed to answer her prayers by helping her find her toy. Satan obliged the girl, terrifying her. This experience stuck with Conolly, and eventually, it got her thinking, and boom, one of the most influential black magickians in the West was born.

It wouldn’t take a generational witchcraft tradition to make one of our ancestors take up vampyrism and the Craft. Sometimes, it takes as little as a single action born of childhood naivety to create a lifetime adherent to the Infernal Divine, as we see with S. Conolly. The guiding spirits of hidden historical witches could have instructed their adherent in the practice of vampyrism, and would have been particularly inclined to do so if their adherent was a born vampyre. Perhaps another vampyre is born when an underground witch asks her guiding spirits about the local stories of blood-drinking corpses.

According to The Psychic Vampire Codex by Michelle Bellenger, if a born vampyre goes too long without feeding, she’ll astrally project in her sleep and drink a bitch. The vampyre might not remember the act– especially if she’s uninitiated, but the victim often experiences something pretty jarring– a vivid nightmare in the least.

Persons born with the vampyric attribute of soul are subconsciously inclined to engage in various behavior-traits to regularly enable involuntarily vampyric nourishment. Circumstances wherein the uninitiated vampyres amongst our ancestors couldn’t pursue mundane methods of subconscious vampyrism would result in their astral double predating upon someone else in the community. This would have engendered more of the folktales that conceptualized what we call mythological vampyres, and the presence of myths about vampyres in a given community, many of which myths originate from predatory spirits, make it more likely for a local witch to take up vampyrism.

If a vampyre wears silver, it’s very, very difficult for them to feed (copper does the opposite). Even today, self-identified born vampyres who wear silver all the time can think that they just naturally suck at feeding on distant victims for years, even if they have multiple other vampyres to talk to it about in person.

All it would have taken is to start vivid and widely attested vampyre myths in a particular community is one uninitiated vampyre with a silver piece of sentimentally-valuable jewelry– her times of accidental energetic self-starvation would engender regular instances of preternatural attack that would spread amongst the locals. Perhaps a witch hidden amongst the crowd takes interest in the stories, and if she’s the heir to a generational tradition of witchcraft, vampyrism could become a family tradition, or at least part of what the generational heirs are taught such that some become vampyres and others do not. Shit, the Christians would blame the vampyric attacks on the Infernal Divine the same way they do with poltergeists.

The conclusion to be drawn from this essay should be simple: vampyrism is not a trend. It’s one of the most legendary and long-lived forms of magick and paranormal activity there is. When a practitioner of psychic vampyrism self-identifies as a vampyre, they aren’t roleplaying: they’re drawing the inevitable conclusion that they are the very type of sorcerer which has terrified humanity for ages in its predatory and uninitiated instantiations. The legends come from us. It’s not the other way around.

This is something that the modern vampyric community has forgotten in its unyielding pursuit of self-humiliation. The Gotham Halo, being a vampyric community native to New York, borrows its organizational structure from a computer game and integrates the worst company it can as if it were their aim to degrade the name of vampyrism as thoroughly as possible.

The Gotham Halo was founded by legitimate Occultists, many if not most of whom venerate and commune with the Undead Gods. Vampyres who aren’t in one of the Occult lodges most popular in the vampyric community will often pretend to be. The first groups to self-identify as vampyres were Post-Satanic magickal lodges dedicated to the pursuit of magickal immortality. But the vampyric community has strayed from what makes it commendable. They’ve made their Occult movement synonymous with the fandom of a video game. They’ve lumped a magickal paradigm in with a pseudoscientific health problem. And, worst of all, they’ve completely forsaken the legitimacy of who they are by blending vampyres with the worst group they could: otherkin.

Among the vampyric community are persons who identify as medical sanguine vampyres. Rather than viewing the consumption of blood as a good way to acquire exogenous human prana, “medsangs” believe they have an undiscovered clinical affliction which necessitates the consumption of human blood.

Now, let’s say the medsangs are right. Let’s say they do need human blood– for all I know, they really do. Debunking pseudoscience is not what my blog is about, and frankly, I wouldn’t tell someone that they’re making something like that up on principle alone. With that said, Medsangs have lumped what they say is a clinical disease in desperate need of scientific research together with a magickal paradigm and a videogame fandom. If they aren’t full of shit, they have made the worst decision they possibly could.

So what the fuck does a Christian who self-medicates with human blood have in common with a vampyric magickian? How can those two demographics even stand being around one another in the first place? The answer is fashion, roleplay, and BDSM.

But the worst is the otherkin. While the existence of transpeople has been proven with neurology (and only lost its perceived credibility because of sociology), otherkin think that their self-identification with animals is somehow justified by this science. While transwomen just want to live like any other women, otherkin have no intention whatsoever of going back to the wild they claim they belong to. If otherkin weren’t full of shit, I wouldn’t know what otherkin were. They’d be doing animal shit and I’d confuse them for feral children or something. Instead, they’ve sought refuge in a world of self-medication and roleplaying.

Let’s say medsangs and otherkin both exist: an unclassified clinical affliction and the world’s smallest minority are now bound to each other, and all hope for either demographic to be scientifically researched like they should be is lost. The scientific community has condemned the New Age which the medsangs and otherkin have lumped themselves in with. The most embarrassing part is that the existence of movie franchises like Underworld has legitimately put the otherkin and vampyres at odds with one another due to the roleplay element. As long as the vampyric community exists the way it does, everyone involved with it is doomed.

The Ascended Vampyres or “Undead Gods” (With Chants and Sigil)

The Ascended Vampyres, more commonly called “the Undead Gods,” are a group of earth-bound wraiths who practiced the art of psychic vampyrism in conjunction with some other form of witchcraft in their physical lives prior to ascent. Every Ascended Vampyre is different and has their own wisdom and knowledge to impart to the summoner. Countless entirely separate vampyric lodges consort with these entities, and the most common ritual performed in honor of them calls them forth to devour the energy of the celebrant(s) and thereupon refill the celebrant with their own energy. This is an incredibly empowering operation.

The reason I keep putting “Undead Gods” in quotation marks is that the Ascended Vampyres are not undead, and they are not gods. They are not powerful enough to be considered deities, and as a necromancer, I can tell you that they are Ascended Masters, not undead. There is a difference. Summoning the Ascended Vampyres is not necromancy.

The Ascended Vampyres, having been incarnate sorcerers previously, are very accommodating, loyal, patient, loving, and generally well-intentioned. They will appear just about any time you ask them to.

Many names have been given to the Ascended Vampyres. The term Akhkharun (singular: Akhkharu), which originally referred to a specific kind of vampyric entity from Akkadian and Egyptian demonology, is often appropriated for this purpose, but I do not endorse this– my guides told me not to use that title to refer to the Ascended Vampyres. Sebastian’s moniker for these spirits, “Strigoi Morte,” translated to mean dead vampyres, is far more fitting, as is the title “Craik-ii-on” from Liber Hirudo.

IMG_5726

This is a picture of the sigil I use for the Undead Gods– it does not refer to any particular subgroup of them. You’ll find this sigil to be very powerful. You may write magickal numbers around the sigil, such as 41, 96, 57, 91, 47, and 56 (the numbers I channeled with a covenmate as apt for calling to the Undead Gods).

The Enochian phrase “Arphe Odzamran Vomquisseron” or “Descend and Appear, Ascended Vampyres” should be useful in summoning them. Vomquisseron is a magickal name I channeled for the Undead Gods long ago.

Here is a magickal formula one may use in calling the Undead Gods forth. They will generally gather in the darkest part of the chamber.

Avvar-Akkawn + Craik-ii-on + Strigoi Morte + Vomquisseron + Ammal-Akkor + Omkimmurral + Ommor-Akkawn + Arphe Odzamran Vomquisseron (x7)

To be clear, it is the last chant which is articulated seven times, not the entire formula. The names in bold are all names for the Undead Gods. Any other celebrants should be told to chant “Vomquisseron Hanazzana” repeatedly as the covenhead vibrates the formula (unless one’s covenmates are comfortable vibrating the parts of the formula in unison with the covenhead. The celebrants should aim to intuitively harmonize their articulations with one another).

Notes on Vampyric Feeding

The circumstances of the victim are a significant determinant of her energetic quality. A sleeping victim will exhibit a heigthened quality of prana, keep this in mind when predating upon roommates and house pets. Such victims are also in an optimal condition to regenerate their ki, so feeding at this time is less harmful.

Victims who are working out, lifting or carrying a heavy object, or dancing will also exhibit a heightened quality of chi as well.

The highest and most bliss-inducing qualities of prana I have ever imbibed came from visibly pregnant women.

Feeding upon an intoxicated individual induces intoxication upon the vampyre, albeit briefly in comparison– the speed at which the vampyre digests exogenous prana is dependent upon her power level (specifically upon a skill I’ve labeled vampyric metabolism). When I first read that drinking from a stoned person who intoxicate the predator, I assumed that one would have to be quite the energy worker to actually manage to get stoned that way. This is not the case.

If you have performed sexual feeding in the past, you are aware of how bliss-enducing and empowering of an experience it is. You will never feel so divine and desirable as you do then.

Vampyrism: Donorship is Preposterous

The majority of the “vampyric community” operates under the guidelines of moralistic doctrine referred to as the Black Veil, and are thus hesitant to predate upon a mortal without expressed permission. This leads them to pursue donors—individuals with a basic comprehension of vampyrism who willingly give of themselves unto the vampyre.

In Liber Nosferatu, it is stated that a vampyre who feeds upon strangers is a “parasite,” and the reader is instructed not to feed without consent.

By following such nonsense and seeking out donors, the witch does much more damage than she otherwise would. Most non-moralistic vampyres feed briefly upon various different passers by or deeply on a particularly appetizing one of the same. While a deep feed will result in fatigue and irritability, and can result in fainting, illness, and bruising or irritation of the skin if pursued to the extremes, even deeply feeding on a stranger is preferable to feeding upon a donor.

After all, the kind of person who would volunteer for donation is clearly a kind and caring friend. If the vampyre must select a person to incur detriment, the well-being of a loved one should outvalues the well-being of a stranger. A friend should be afforded a varying degree of loyalty and good wishes and it is errant to treat them like an ash tray.

Moreover, the donor would necessarily be fed upon routinely. Why would the witch want to detriment a loved one regularly instead of causing multiple unimportant people, people to whom she owes no loyalty, enervation once or twice in the course of their lives?

Being regularly penetrated by tendrils weakens the aura of the target and creates permanent weak spots therein. It could even force the donor to take on the vampyric appetite, albeit temporarily.

Psychic vampyres incur certain degrees of stigma amongst certain elements of the Satanist scene, particularly those influenced by LaVeyan or Setian philosophy. It is clear that this stigma rightly belongs to unawakened vampyres, whose Hunger inclines them to histrionic behaviors and the routine enervation of whomever they fraternize with.

Routinely feeding upon the same individuals, whether one is awakened or not, is far more parasitic than what is recommended in these texts.

Green is the Color of the Vampyre

Many different vampyres have conferred to me that they felt an intuitive link to the color green as a color of power. The first of these was a covenmate, who spoke out of his intuition. The second was Kaos Butterfly, whom always felt green to be a color of magickal power as well. The third was Morain himself, who considers green his favorite color as well as the color of his aura.

Kaos told me that the most vampyric people he’s met have had green eyes, and an allegory called Porcelain Face Programming from the Tempel ov Blood’s inner journal gives their vampyric adept protagonist sea green eyes.

In Encylopedia of Vampire Mythology, Theresa Bane writes the following:
“The color green has played a part in Celtic and Chinese vampire lore from early beginnings. Usually in their stories, if green is mentioned as being the color of someone’s clothing or HAIR, it is something of an early indicator to the listener or reader that the person is in fact some sort of vampire. Lamps are narrated as suddenly burning with a green flame when a vampire enters a room. This ancient custom has found its way in modern storytelling; H. P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and Bram Stoker have all used this color to point out the undead to their readers.

In the depictions of the vampyric fairies and zombies presented by the text, green is often shown to be interchangeable with white, particularly in the case of vampyric fae such as banshees.

Green is the color of envy, both in New Age color signification and in modern folk lore. Ergo, it is sensible to link the color to the practice of vampyrism. It’s also the color of the chakra in the middle of the spine– the one which connects to the shoulder chakras and disperses energy throughout sushuma.

Plants can’t digest green light. The reason they look green is because that color of light is bouncing off of them. Since born vampyres cannot properly digest natural prana, we have a sensible correlation.

Psychic Vampyrism

Vampyrism is the art of feeding upon the life essence of fellow organisms. The Psychic Vampyre feeds not upon the blood of the flesh but the blood of the soul. This is the prana, the chi, the ki, the “blood essence,” as some authors call it. For the sake of these writings, we will operate on the New Age consensus that all of these terms are synonymous.
There are people who are intrinsically blessed with the necessity for Vampyric feeding. These people require prana, blood, or both from other beings by their very natures—they have a specific kind of soul. Naturally, Psychic Vampyres are more common than Sanguine ones.

Psychic Vampyrism differs from the consumption of blood in that anyone can benefit from Psychic Vampyrism. Humans naturally cycle energy in from their environment and back out into their environment in a process similar to respiration.

If one deliberately takes in prana from other people instead of their surroundings, they will lead an enhanced quality of life. You do not need to be intrinsically blessed with the Hunger to benefit from exogenous human energy in the same way that you do not need to be diabetic to benefit from clean eating.

Non-witches with the Hunger will subconsciously essay to elicit emotion and thus prana from other people via things such as the initiation of conflict, promiscuity, or class-clown behavior. Once the Vampyre learns to directly and deliberately satiate the Hunger through witchcraft, they experience an enhanced quality of life for three reasons.

One: the Vampyre can satiate the Hunger almost whenever it suits them.

Two: the Vampyre, now satiated, will no longer be driven to resort toasinine fucking behavior to get what they need.

Three: the Vampyre can get higher quantities and qualities of what they need all while developing their magickal skills. I have elected to use the spelling of “magick” as the addition of the letter K was originally a reference to the eighth letter, Kaf, of the Hebrew alphabet. 8 is the number of the Great Work.
Psychic Vampyrism increases longevity, visualization skills, vitality, psychic senses, personal magnetism, and holistic magickal talent. The practice of it increases the witch’s aptitude for psychic combat, empathy, psychometry, servitor creation, mind control, and the programming of energy with intent.

So here is the way that the witches of the Coven of the Second Torch acquire exogenous organic prana. Visualize a thin black tendril extending from the tip of your middle finger into the victim. Inhale deeply, visualizing the target’s energy flowing down your little wire and into your flesh. As you do this, rhythmically repeat the mantra “Surripio ki tuam” in your mind’s ear.
The mantra means “I am stealing your ki” in Latin, but the witch should view it as magick words used for the draining of energy rather than focusing upon what it means when they are feeding. Once you’ve got the hang of this, start using multiple tendrils, eventually on multiple targets, to take in as much energy as quickly as possible. You will learn to dig deeper and deeper into your victim’s astral body, getting richer and richer chi.

Once you have finished feeding upon the target, withdraw your tendril or imagine one withdrawing. It this proves troublesome to accomplish, issue the mental command “Rescind!”

The key to this is being in the moment and concentrating on the visualization. If you’re in a rush to get it done, you will have more trouble feeding than you would otherwise.

You don’t have to stare at your target, just keep them in your peripheral vision.

Taking a low amount of energy will heighten the overall quality of the target’s life essence. Taking a large amount will result in irritability and torpidity. One of my apprentices once fed deeply upon an intoxicated addict who was threatening me with a bottle in the hopes that the drunkard would relax. That is not what occurred.

The magickal numbers which I have channeled for the purpose of Psychic Vampyrism are as follows: 86, 37, 49, 560, and 8030. The witch may write these numbers on her flesh in sharpie while focusing on the intention of increasing the potency of her deliberate Vampyrisms.

Take a moment now to open your shoulder chakras. Visualize a brilliant white sphere in each shoulder as you vibrate “Lepaca,” the name of the Demon of Opening, to open the chakras. Once this is complete, you may send tendrils out of your shoulders instead of hands.

It should not be long before you start using multiple tendrils simultaneously, within time, even on multiple targets. Creating tendrils from the shoulders is more discrete than from the hands and it places the energy you drain in the center of your body almost immediately.
